Team RadioShack has unveiled its racing strip, as modelled by team leader and seven-times Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.
The new American ProTour team has elected to use the colours of its lead sponsor, the US-based electronics retailer RadioShack - red and grey. It is a classic and uncluttered design.
Present and correct are the names of bike sponsor Trek and, of course, the yellow band of Armstrong's LiveStrong cancer foundation on the left sleeve. Also there is the logo of team vehicle provider, Nissan.
The team's clothing is manufactured by long-term Armstrong sponsor, Nike.
"Still some tweaking to be done but here you go for now..." said Armstrong of the design via his Twitter feed.
The official team press release was slightly more gushing. "The experts at Nike and our partners at RadioShack helped to create this fast form-fitting design using various textures and patterns symbolizing the themes of new technology, global connectivity and community. We think it looks pretty damn cool," it said.
The final version of the team's kit will be used in the squad's first competitive outing in January, at the Tour Down Under in Australia.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
